   From yesterday my home button doesn't work anymore. I didn't hit the phone or anything. When I press it, nothing happens.To use the phone I must press the turn on key. Factory data reset didn't work. Some suggestions?

I just picked a Galaxy S up yesterday from SaskTel (they come from Bell Canada with slightly different settings). Mine is running Android 2.1 update1 date code on the hardware is 10.12 and I am having issues with my menu button and back button (so far my home button is fine), it does not always work in menus where it should.

Are you guys running 2.1 or 2.2?

Ok so I just updated to android 2.2 and the back/menu/home button issue is less prevalent.  However, I find that when I am in certain apps or menus and I get a text message the back, menu and home key do not function.  I have to press the side pwr button to sleep it then use the home to wake it up.

Anyone else having these issues?

I should have posted a reply long ago..

After upgrading 2.2 I still had issues.  I did a factory reset on my phone and since then (still running 2.2) I have not had any problems with the back/home buttons flashing or not working.

Hi.

I had the same problem with my Samsung Galaxy S (Froyo 2.2).  Home button stopped functioning entirely, couldnt lock the screen and the power button menu options disappeared amongst other things.  Was about to do a factory reset and connected my phone 'mass storage' USB mode to my computer to transfer the pictures before being wiped by the reset.  After unplugging the cable the home key/lock screen and power off menu options were all working again!

So before trying a factory reset, try changing Wireless and Networks -> usb settings -> 'mass storage' and connect to a computer then disconnect!
